Whether you are an aspiring illustrator or an experienced designer, Half-as-Big and the Tiger is sure to inspire you to create your own unique works of art. By studying the techniques used by Weisgard and other illustrators, and experimenting with your own style and approach, you can create illustrations that are not only beautiful but also impactful and memorable.
Here are some ideas to keep in mind when experimenting in your own work:
- Simple color palettes (even monochrome palettes like in Half-as-Big and the Tiger) can be just as exciting and cut down on printing costs.
- You can intentionally limit your art making process for creative challenges and innovation.
- Fonts can be used to increase the realism of your retro-inspired work.
- Take advantage of negative space to isolate elements of your illustration.
So, go ahead and pick up your pencil, paintbrush, or digital tool of choice, and start creating! Whether you are drawing inspiration from the pages of Half-as-Big and the Tiger or forging your own path, remember to stay true to your vision and embrace the creative process.
Who knows, you may just create the next timeless classic that inspires generations of illustrators and designers to come.
